Paint it black, no, green!

In a bout of spring cleaning this year, I decided it was time to paint a few more rooms in my house.  Did you know that Sherwin Williams has two lines of Environmentally-Preferred low-VOC paint?  They come in just about any color you could want, and I can attest that they stink much less than regular paints.

Read about these paints (Duration and Harmony) here:

If you hire a painting contractor, tell him/her to look for Pro Green low-VOC interior latex paint.

Green Seal Standards 3, 11, 36
SCAQMD #1113, 1168
